Don't Go Changing

Some things change, like the weather and fashion. Some things persist, like wallpaper, clinging on through the decades. It’s always Autumn inside my mum’s neighbours house, where these scenic backdrops have survived the taunts of dismissive citizens for over 35 years. Yes sir, and it's not going anywhere! This reminds me of a unwound clock, which will always be right twice a day, whereas a slow or fast clock never hits the mark. The neighbours have found an moment they want to live in, and I applaud their choice.


  1. OMG - we just spotted some different, yet similar wallpaper at a really weird estate sale:

  2. Hi Jenny....I see what you mean! The organ, the framed organist, the waterfall wallpaper turning bluer from light exposure..kooky, wonderful, thanks for sharing!

  3. I LOVE wall murals, they always lend surrealism to a room.
